Support for the vending service from MSC has been “ex-
ceptional,” said Griffes. “MSC assigned us a vending specialist, Matt Dutkiewicz, who works closely with our local MSC rep, Lola Brophy. This tandem regularly visits together to ensure our machine is functioning as expected and that the tooling drawers are loaded with the best MSC brands that will deliver optimum performance for whatever it is we are set to machine.”

hen Moore Tool Co. (Bridgeport, CT) set out to build a true five- axis, high-speed machining center for use in the production of critical compo- nents for the most demanding industrial applications, the challenges were many. The machine was targeted to serve criti- cal needs in the turbo machinery, mold and die, scroll compressor and medical markets. In particular, this new equip- ment was needed to produce a wide va- riety of precision aerospace components such as blisks (bladed disks) and IBRs (integrally bladed rotors), plus impellers and other complex contoured parts. Machine design criteria required that the machining center have the capabil- ity to provide superior high-speed five- axis machining when milling materials ranging from aluminum to hardened steel and titanium. The machine needed
